Jo-Jo, our beloved leader! When we, the one hundredth class, 
chose her for our President we showed how much we think of her. 
She is certainly capable of her position. Jo-Jo sets a good 
example for us to follow: she has scaled the Honor Roll and 
reached the top. She always has the same cheery smile and 
friendly word for everyone. She can act to perfection, being an 
honorable member of A. D. S. She is also business manager of the 
Courant. Quite a combination!

We all expect to see Kay a 
few years from now in a white 
cap and dress, nursing the infants 
at Abbot who eat too much. You 
know, that's a habit of theirs, es- 
pecially when they go to Inter- 
vale. Kay took Miss Carpenter's 
advice about posture and is now 
setting us an example. How she 
ever manages to stand up straight 
enough to stay on the Posture 
Honor Roll for four years is 




beyond us — but then, it's natural for Kay to manage things well. 



ELIZABETH MONTAGUE BOWSER 

Bessie 

Lawrence, Mass. 

Connecticut College Three Years

Golf Team '28; Second Tennis Team '28; Courant Board '28, '29; 
Tennis Team '29. 

Bessie runs our class finances — 
that job of trying to get us to pay 
our debts when we are "broke". 
She does it, too, which is proof of 
her ability. Every issue of the 
Courant is better because it con- 
tains some of Bessie's witty poems 
or articles. Athletically, tennis 
and clock golf are her strong 
points, but don't be mistaken, 
these aren't all she can do. She is 
a willing troubadour and enter- 
tains us often. One thing more, 
"Bessie, why do you blush so?"

Kay is the life of the party no 
matter where she may be. She is 
one of our best dancers, and may 
always be counted on for a never- 
ending stream of " bright remarks ' ' . 
By the way, Kay, where do you get that slang? Food is one of 
the chief interests in Kay's life, and she does get away with a sur- 
prisingly large amount of it. Remember the box-lunch, or lunches, 
she had on the train going to Intervale? Her cheery good nature 

and sunny spirit have carried us 
through many a dark day.

First and foremost, "Alish" runs our athletics. She is certainly 
capable of this task, as she shines in every sport going; and if 
anyone knows the meaning of the word "sportsmanship", that 
person is "Alish". But the name Alice Butler is honored in other 
ways, for hasn't it a firm position on the Honor Roll? Yes, "Alish" 
knows a lot about books too. "May" and "Alish" are a great pair 
of roommates. We often wonder what they'd be up to if "Alish" 
weren't on "Stu. G." As it is, there is always a lively time to be 
had when they are both around. We feel that "Alish" is an indis- 
pensable member of '29.

Senior-Mid Play '28. 

Charl was famous last year 
for her "wee, small voice," but 
even so she made a very successful 
president of our senior-mid class. 
Her voice must have gained 
strength with age, for she played 

"Mouth" in the senior play, which was a "rowdy, rackety" part. 
Charl is also small in stature, yet she made the hockey team over 
many huskier candidates. When it comes to her brains, however, 
small is just the wrong word, for Charl is one of these brilliant girls! 
She passed all her college boards last year and is merely taking 
this year's work for a firmer foundation.

THE ABBOT CIRCLE 



GERTRUDE MAE CAMPION 

Andover, Mass. 

Four Years 

Fidelio '27, '28, '29; Aeolian 
'28, '29; Secretary and Treasurer 
of Aeolian '29. 

Gertie is what one might call 
a frail flower. She seems so delicate 
that one good puff of wind might 
blow her completely away, but 
that doesn't mean she can't do 
things. Just hearing her play the 
piano will more than prove that. 
She has been in Fidelio for three 
years and in the Aeolian Society 
for two and, as you may see above, 
she is now Secretary-Treasurer of 
Aeolian. Gertie is -another day- 
scholar that we boarders have 
become really acquainted with this year, partly through the 
Senior Parlor, and partly through Intervale — and we surely are 
grateful to both. 





FRANCES CONDIT COBB 

"Cobb" 

Boonton, N. J. 

Pratt Institute Five Years 

Fidelio '23, '24; Northfield '25, 
'28; Entertainment Committee '28; 
Croquet Team '29; Senior Play '29. 

Cobb has been here five years 
altogether. She left one year and 
went to another school — only 
to discover, as all true Abbot 
girls do, that Abbot is the best 
school after all — and "the cat 
came back". We're glad she did. 
Imagine our class without Cobb's 



SENIORS

bright remarks and contagious laugh to keep us going. Our most 
cherished memory of Cobb, and we have many, is of her swirling- 
round and round down the hill in a two by four pan up at Intervale 
— with those two little tassels on her cap bobbing up and down. 



VIRGINIA ELIZABETH DRAKE

C our ant Board '28; C our ant

Ginny is Millie's room-mate 
and she certainly makes an ideal 
one for the honored President of 
Student Government. We won- 
der if she ever has any craving to 
misbehave. Perhaps she gets away 
with things — who knows ? ? She can 

dance beautifully, and the whole school is mighty glad to have her 
when it comes to stunts of any sort. Of course, we all know her 
ability on the C our ant board. When it lacks material, she just sits 
down and writes it off by the yard. We sure take our hats off to 
you, Ginny!

THE ABBOT CIRCLE 



Captain of Griffins '29; North- 
field Delegate '28; German Play 
'29. 

May has more in common with 
the musical star, Mary Eaton, 
than just a name, for she is little, 
and blonde, and pretty. What more 
could any girl want? But Mary is 
not satisfied with that alone; she 
must have her finger in everything. 
Her accomplishments are many, 
ranging from athletics to choir, 
and finally to Captain of the 
Griffins. May makes a fine leader 
and has inspired many a Griffin 
to trudge forth in a downpour of 
rain to finish her walks in order to gain points for her club. 
May has a mischievous twinkle in her eye and a spontaneous 
laugh which bursts forth at the wrong time. Just ask Mr. Howe. 




BARBARA ELLIOTT 

"Barb" "Bobbie" 
Willimantic, Conn. 



Connecticut College 



Two Years 




A necessary member of our 
class is Barbara with her ever- 
lasting good humor and wit. 
When we're blue we go to Barb, 
for we know her charming naivete 
will cheer us up. Her merry giggle 
can always be heard on the third 
floor wing; no — not always — 'cause 
often it's overwhelmed by more 
raucous mirth which some "bon 
mot" of hers has elicited. Barbara 
is one of our class artists, and we're 
sure she'll end up (thanks to 
Miss Kelsey) doing clever comic 
strips.

OLIVE TAYLOR ELSEY 

Harrisburg, Pa. 

Two Years 

Class Book Board '29; Ad- 
visory Board '29; Centennial Ex- 
hibition Committee '29; Senior 
Play '29; Les Beaux Arts '29; 
Draper Dramatics '29. 

Olive is our class artist; for 
proof, just glance at the sketches 
in this book. Twinkling dimples 
and a flashing smile are two of 
her strong points. Ask the photo- 
graphers — they know. Will we ever 
forget the "close-ups" taken at 
Intervale? Of course not. and 
along side of that in our minds will 
be the memory of Olive and 
Gillie going at double-quick time 
through the intricate steps of the latest dance from Pennsylvania. 




MARGARET ESTY 

"Peg" 

Framingham, Mass. 
Two Years 

Advisory Board '28; Choir '28,

Fidelio '28; Aeolian '28, '29; 
President of Aeolian '29; Draper 
Dramatics '28; Riding Team '28; 
Club Hockey Team '28. 

While laboring through a math 
test we are pretty sure to be enter- 
tained either by Peg's singing or 
by her Bach Fugues on the organ. 
We haven't decided yet which is 
most helpful. Peg is our most pro- 
minent musician and we certainly

did enjoy her duets with Louise on the Senior Picnic. If you want 
to hear the heartiest laugh in school we advise you to page Peg 
Esty. She is, also, the champion page-turner for all musical events 
of importance. 

~~ DOROTHY MAY FIELD 

"Dot" 

Phillips, Me. 

Wellesley Two Years 

Philomatheia '28, '29; Volley 
Ball Team '28; Honor Roll '28, 
'29; Posture Committee '29. 

In the long run Dot has us 
beaten whether in a foot race or 
mental test. She just can't be 
out-done when it comes to grades, 
at least not in the college division 
of the class. Geniuses are, as a 
rule, melancholy, but not so with 
Dot. She may be a bit different, but only in that she is always 
cheerful. We defy anyone to contradict that statement. 





BARBARA SYLVESTER FOLK 

"Bab" 

Andover, Mass. 

Boston School of Occupational 
Therapy Five Years 

Fidelio '25, '26, '27, '28, '29; 
Class Treasurer '26; Senior Mid 
Play '28; Senior Play '29; Club 
Hockey Team '29; Club Volley 
Ball '27 

And who thinks of Polly, with- 
out Barbara! The picture just 
isn't complete. For five years Bab 
has helped to sustain '29 by her 
practical suggestions and sensible 
ideas. She is a faithful stand-by of 



SENIORS 



21 




Fidelio, and has shown her fine dramatic ability in both the 
Senior-Mid play and the Senior play. Bab is the one who likes 
violets so much. She certainly brings lovely ones — and often we 
wonder where they go ! 



MARY KENDRICK FRANCIS 

"Polly" 

Andover, Mass. 

Art School Five Years 



Fidelio '25, '26, '27, '28, '29; 
Armband '25; Track Team '28; 
Numerals '28; Student Council

S. '28, '29; A. D. S. Play '28, 
'29; Senior-Mid Play '28; Draper 
Dramatics '27; German Play '29; 
Senior Play '29 

We call her Polly, but one really can't keep track of all her names. 
She is either Robert Trowbridge, Jakob Zorn, Gioconda, Harry, 
or best of all, Pierrot! For hours, we sit enthralled, listening to the 
passionate voice of our ideal man — then, plop! The lights are on and 
there stands Polly, our hero. Do you think we are disappointed? 
Not on your life! Boy or girl, on stage or off, we love her just the 
same. But acting is only one of 
Polly's numerous virtues. Doesn't 
she make those wild and reckless 
day-scholars toe the line? 



HESTER DOROTHE GERRISH 
"Dot" 

Andover, Mass. 
Holyoke Five Years 

Odeon '29; Entertainment Com- 
mittee '29. 

"Dot" may seem quiet in 
school, but is she that way 




22 THE ABBOT CIRCLE 

outside?? She may be quiet, but she's none the less popular (so we 
hear), with the inmates of our brother school on the hill! Who 
would doubt the fact, knowing her engaging smile and twinkling 
blue eyes? "Dot" is quite the rider, as we discovered at Intervale 
where she so aptly led the skijorers. And that wasn't the only 
thing she did at Intervale — speaking of pipes bursting!

Gillie has many accom- 
plishments. Besides keeping us 
straight as President of A. C. A., 
she handled the new girls with 
great skill, and as a staunch mem- 
ber of L. B. A. has helped decorate 
many banquets. And did you 
ever see such a crowded room as 
Gillie's when "the picture" 
arrived? Why, there wasn't elbow 
room! And some people wonder 
why Gentlemen Prefer Blondes !

Lo is one of the busiest girls 
in the school, and in spite of all 
her business, she tops the honor 
roll, smiles continually, and adores 
athletics. Any day you may see 
her riding horseback, or training 
rigorously to heighten her speed 
for hockey or track. Complaints 
and frowns are nonentities in Lois' 
life, and in years to come we'll 
remember that she could be de- 
pended upon to get things done, 
and that her hair was curly and almost 




golden. 



MARY JEANETTE HUBBARD 

"Jean" 

Pontiac, Mich. 
University of Michigan 

Les Beaux Arts '28, '29; Vice- 
President and Secretary of L. B. A.

Jeanette is our "blushing prim- 
rose" (with all due respects to 
Jarman). "Jean, Jean, with her 
cheeks so red; we wonder if she 
takes them off before she goes to 
bed." Jean is a talented member 
of L. B. A., and helps us out with 
artistic posters now and then. To 
a casual observer she may appear 
quiet, but not so! When she and 
Jarman get together, they're cer- 
tainly a witty pair!

"Hulse", as we call her, has the 
most logical mind in the class, and 
her frankness is refreshing when 
we are wearied by too much 
suavity. We think that her determined jaw and broad shoulders, 
together with her logic, indicate that she would make a successful 
lawyer. Betty is a good sport, and plays an exceptionally strong 
game of tennis. And isn't West Point near Vassar?

Thus runs our train of thought when Helen is mentioned. Now 
Helen is a very capable and very entertaining little girl as well. We 
don't know what Philomatheia would have done without her. As 
Doll in "Prunella", in spite of 
her " unf eelingness " she won our 
hearts. Speaking of hearts, won't 
we be proud and thrilled when 
she graduates and — and — guess we 
won't go into that after all. 



JOYCE JARMAN

Varsity Hockey Team '28, '29; Second Hockey Team '27; Class 
Numerals '28; Griffin Hockey Team '28, '29. 

Jarman, carries out our idea of what the well-dressed girl 
should wear — a virtual echo of Vogue. But this isn't her main 
forte. Her dry English wit is unbeatable, and is particularly 
enhanced by the non-committal expression with which she utters 
her telling remarks. Hockey takes 
on new vigor when Joyce is play- 
ing steadily in the backfield, and 
we feel sure that she'll always be 
there to intercept that pass. 



F. GWENLLIAN JONES

Cincinnati, Ohio 

Wellesley Three Years

Brown wavy hair, deep brown eyes, a sunny "disposish" — that 
is Gwen. She upholds the beauty standards of our Class, and maybe 
our brothers at P. A. haven't discovered it too. The long and the 
short of them appear once a week and Gwen tactfully keeps them 
both happy. As for her missing a tea dance — that's beyond our 
imagination. However Gwen still has a weakness "for the boy she 
left behind her" in Cincinnati. We wonder if a snappy new brown 
Dodge has anything to do with it. But even with all her social 
activities and many letters Gwen has time to run Q. E. D. and 
to edit this book, and, as you can see, she has been very successful. 
Gwen, above all, is loved by everybody for her graciousness, her 
kind-heartedness and her sweetness. 

ELEANOR JONES

Three Years 

A. D. S. '28, '29; A. D. S. Play

We don't know Eleanor's plans 
for next year, but we are willing to 
recommend her as an actress to 
any theatrical producer. She has 
proven her dramatic talent here. 
Eleanor portrays many characters 
equally well. The Old Lady, an 
Irish maid, a gossiping neighbor, 
or a Pierrette. We could also vouch 
that she would make no show of temperament at rehearsals, but 
rather help to make things run more smoothly by her even dispo- 
sition.

We were all very glad when 
Bobbie satisfied her suppressed 
desire by moving down from her 
lofty height to take care of Cobb. 
We understand they're an ideal 
pair. Of course, to most of us, 
"Apple-Dumpling", as her de- 
voted roommate calls her, seems 
demure, but — "what's your idea 
in bringing that up?" Bobbie is 
quite an actress and as the little 
boy in Prunella, her favorite 
saying is, "Oh, you naughty, 
naughty birds!" However, we have 
grave doubts as to her using this 
little speech outside of Abbot Dramatics.

"K's" blonde hair makes her a 
shining light of our class. But don't 
get the idea that "K" is merely 
another "beautiful blonde. " Quite 
the contrary, for she certainly has 
shown how capable she can be as 

"Stu. G". representative and as Vice-President of A. A. A. She is 
also our walking Paris fashion model. And as for basketball, well, 
she showed Bradford how to run up a good score.

Some of us have been wonder- 
ing, these past few years, why 
Estelle seems to be so preoccupied 
at times. The answer, we are told, 
is "q" — and "q" does not stand 
for "question". 

We wonder what Estelle will do 
next year without Jane. She gave 
us quite a "kick" in the Senior 
Plav.

Jane may be small, but that 
doesn't mean anything. She can 
be heard, if perhaps not seen, 
everywhere. She is very smart and 
conscientious. It certainly is a 
joy to have people like that 
around. She is a worthy member 
of Philomatheia, and her scientific 
mind combined with her talkative 
powers keep the meetings alive. Her sparring partner is Estelle 
Levering, and where she is there Jen will be also.

Deep-toned laughter, and all the vitality possible are bundled 
together with sweet seriousness in Betty Mac. Her love of hockey 
is second only to her dancing, and we can't imagine Abbot without 
her to manage things. At Intervale 
she took all prizes for her pro- 
ficiency in skijoring in spite of her 
skinned knees. And if you ever 
see a far-away look in her eyes — 
it's Hanover or perhaps Amherst! 
We might all suggest three cheers 
for Betty Mac.

Yes, of course it's Peg, and maybe we don't envy her dashing 
around the circle in "Susie", and her countless stories of "last 
night we did this, and the night before we did that". Peg has been 
here for five years, and Abbot will surely miss her next year. We all 
agree that Peg is an all-around good sport, and being good-natured 
is one of her virtues.

Betty Mac chose well when she 
made Charley the right wing on

you ever see anyone run quite as 
fast as she did that well-re-

other one of Charley's very special

hair. It's the kind of hair you see 

in advertisements but usually seems too good to be true — except 
on someone as cute as Charley is!

she can dance off stage as well 
as on. As our cheer leader she 
merrily waves us on with her little

Mary is quite the debater, and 
it is said that she lends great zest 
to Miss Chickering's classes. Mary 
is usually deep in a book, so inter- 
ested that at times even bells are 
forgotten. That's what we call 
real absorption — especially when 
they're dinner bells! When she's 
not studying, if we listen closely 
to the strains from the music Bay, 
we can easily distinguish the quick 

loud chords of the Arensky waltz or something equally impressive 

— and we know it's Mary and Jean !

dance in the "rec" room. Didn't 
we keep her busy at Intervale? 
We really got acquainted with 
her there, and found her to be 
quite a peppy individual and 
heaps of fun (even if her midnight 
call from New York did wake us 
all up !) Ruth is to be commended 
for her dress-making ability and her tendencies toward housework, 
too. She'll make some man a nice wife someday (soon).

efficient chairman of the Abbot Birthday Committee and she got 
her high-heeled evening slippers here in record speed for the Senior

So we give three cheers for the Green and White, 

And ever our friendships plight 

To Abbot our guiding light.

Ever brightened by the Class of '29.

The Prophecy of 1 929 

She sat in a straight-back rocker 

And was dressed in the primmest of grey 

She was dear Madame Abbot, 

A century ago to a day. 

And as she rocked she knitted, 
And as she knitted, she thought 
Of the school she had just founded 
And built on the Abbot Street lot, 

With the thought and the labor of years 
A true, great work of love 
With a purpose fine and steadfast 
And the help of God above. 

She dreamed of a lovely campus, 
And many buildings more, 
And as her thoughts went roaming, 
A knock came at the door. 



46 THE ABBOT CIRCLE 

A dark-eyed gypsy entered 
And begged to be allowed 
To tell Dame Abbot's future 
As she saw it in a cloud. 

She crossed her palm with silver 
And watched the gypsy wise 
Revealing future stories 
Which were written in the skies. 

"A hundred years from now," she said, 
"Your school will have a class 
Of forty-nine fair debutantes 
Who cannot be surpassed. 

In work they'll be proficient 
And in society too 
But some as housewives will prefer 
Their homely tasks to do." 

The gypsy told each member 
And what each one would do 
And since it all applies to us 
I'll pass it on to you. 

Jo-Jo, our lovely president 
Goes flying through the air — 
Her aviator husband 
Takes her winging everywhere. 

At taking care of sick folks 
Kay Blunt will quite succeed : 
She's bright and quick and cheerful 
That's what all patients need. 

As it were Kay B. will learn to care 
For a Marblehead yachtsman bold 
With Kay at the helm of his Hereshoff 
He'll win trophies of solid gold. 



THE PROPHECY OF 1929 47 

Money, money, money, 
Is all our Bessie wants; 
She'll beg for it forever 
And all our dreams she'll haunt. 

'Lish in love has fallen. 

Cupid couldn't fail 

To bring to her a hubby 

Who's a "grad" of dear old Yale. 

Richard Halliburton 
Chose Serena for his wife 
Climbing in the Andes 
Is their true idea of life. 

Gertrude Campion will plan 
To be a great musician 
But I can see her married 
To an Andover physician. 

Cobb is living blithely 
In a wee snug bungalow 
Abbot household science 
Made a cook of her, we know. 

Ginny now lives in Hayti — 
That wonderful "Magic Isle" — 
She married an officer down there, 
They'll be back to the States in a while. 

May Eaton soon will marry 
And have at least four boys, 
They'll live out in the country 
On account of all their noise. 

Her portrait of Lady Lindbergh 
Will win the Nobel Prize, 
And thus in the world of painting 
Miss Elliot will rise.

Art was Olive's weakness, 
But she won't design for long. 
A love bird soon will warble 
His most fascinating song. 

Margaret will be in opera 
And will sing to queens and kings. 
Her arias are most heavenly 
And every note just rings. 

Diggin' away in far Egypt — 
Archaeology is her line — 
Dot Field will uncover "Tut's" brother 
So her fame will never decline. 

The Manse is run by Barbara Folk 
Her meals are quite a treat. 
She caters just to Phillips boys 
And other such elite. 

Julia Marlowe passed away 
But Polly takes her part. 
For when it comes to acting, 
Miss Francis knows her art. 

Dot Gerrish will run the Polly Prim 
And make the girls look sweet. 
At waves and facials she'll excel 
And "coif" the town's elite. 

Gilly dressed in ivory white 

A lovely bride of June, 

With Ned goes marching down the aisle 

Their wedding takes place soon.

The head of all honor rolls 

She knows everything in existence 

And her praise '29 now extolls. 



THE PROPHECY OF 1929 V.) 

Jeanette will run a stylish shop 
Competing well with Jay's. 
Her clothes are quite the latest thing 
But what a price one pays! 

"There always will be quarrels" 
So Betty Hulse will say; 
Law will be her business 
And my, how it will pay. 

Mrs. Lee Whittles, nee Hurlburt, 
As his charming and pretty wife, 
Will find that it's not so easy 
To lead a doctor's life. 

Jarman went to England 
And married some great Lord. 
Joyce, a high-bred Lady, 
Will never drive a Ford. 

Jones is a very common name 
It's Eleanor's regret. 
But I just know she'll change it 
For a Greek name better yet. 

"Gwen" rhymes with men — how appropriate 

They flock wherever she goes; 
But the one she'll choose to marry 
Is a secret no man knows. 

Cobb's dear "apple dumpling" 
Is Bobby Kendall's name, 
And as a D. C. debutante 
She soon will win her fame. 

Kay Kennedy will marry 
Her name, you know, was Love, 
And she will be successful 
As a cooing turtle-dove. 



50 THE ABBOT CIRCLE 

Estelle sits in the Senate 
A politician keen; 
And helps to make this nation 
Keep its business clean, 

Jane Linn will buy a soap box, 
And keep on talking 'til 
The Day of Judgment happens; 
Then, perhaps, she will keep still. 

Betty Mac with five blonde sons 
Is quite a busy wife, 
But she just laughs and quite believes 
That marriage is the life. 

She still speeds round in Susie, 
But Peg, a married dame, 
Has a car just full of kiddies 
To help keep the family name. 

Beth will compete with Berlin 
Writing songs both sad and gay 
She brightens the lives of many 
In this happy, musical way. 

"E. J." will not marry Deane 

She'll meet another sheik, 
And she and he will marry 
Having loved for just one week. 

A policewoman of Andover 
Charlotte Osgood will be; 
And if you break a single law 
She'll soon be after ye. 

Our Cleone will not lack a Place 
In history's pages great. 
She'll practice law, and thus will win 
In every hot debate. 



THE PROPHECY OF 1929 .51 

Deppy interprets any tongue 
For ministers of state. 
One day she'll marry one of them 
And live a life sedate. 

Bettina will run a nursery 
With the wealth she will receive. 
That she's wonderful with children 
We can very well believe. 

Mary Roys will vie with Shakespeare 

For her literary fame 

Genius will spur her onward 

And the world will know her name. 

Swishing skirt of grasses, 

A winsome hula girl, 

Ruth Shulze in Ziegfeld's chorus 

Does a never-ending twirl. 

Edith Smith seems quiet to some, 
But really she's no saint. 
Her life will be a lively one — 
The details I won't paint. 

A school for high-class children — 
Miss Stephens at the prow 
Will coach the wealthy kiddies 
For their future social bow. 

Rachmaninoff, he will soon pass — 
And Paderewski, too. 
But if we have Jean Stewart 
We won't miss the other two. 

Betty Taylor will make costumes 
For all Flo Ziegfeld's shows. 
Getting properties for Seniors 
She's learned that line, one knows.

The governor's sweet daughter, 
Louise, is famous in our land, 
Cuz Allan Hoover now is seeking 
To possess her fair young hand. 

Carol Upham's editor 
Of New York's famous "Times". 
For such a well-known person 
One should not concoct rhymes. 

A minister's wife is Miss Wheeler 
She runs all his social affairs, 
And finds that the life of the clergy 
Is weighed down with very great cares. 

After she leaves fair Wellesley 
She'll teach for a year or two; 
But with winsome eyes like Polly's 
Teaching will never do. 

The playwright of the Senior class, 
Priscilla Whittemore, 
Will have five plays on Broadway, 
And still go on writing more. 

At Loew's State or some such theatre 
Emelyn will play each night. 
With her calm and haunting love tunes 
Any show will go off right. 

Her life's not worth a nickel 
After all this awful verse. 
The best thing left for Millie 
Is to ride off in a hearse. 

Dear Madame Abbot has gone from us 
The gypsy strolls no more, 
But you and I will live to see 
The great truths of her lore.

Ring Song 

Let us join together, Seniors 

And in song all our voices raise. 

We've been hoping and longing and waiting 

For this time in our Abbot days, 

When at last we've gained a symbol 

Of the work we've accomplished here, 

A ring of this golden metal 

Tiny, but to our hearts how dear. 

When we have left Abbot days behind 

And are out on our own in the world, 

Each bearing her own banner of life 

Which for her Abbot has unfurled, 

Then our rings will bring back dearest memories 

Though our roads may be far apart, 

And we'll cherish always for our mother school 

That great love which lies deep in our heart.

Stately, sweeping branches 
Reaching to the sky 
Lift our hearts up with you 
To noble thoughts and high. 



Through your strength and beauty 
We shall try to say 
All our hopes for Abbot 
On this commencement day. 

As you grow more noble 
May she also grow, 
From her open portals 
May inspiration flow. 

Stately, sweeping branches 
Reaching to the sky 
Lift our hearts up with you 
To noble thoughts and high.

Parting Hymn 

Father, I know that all my life 

Is portioned out for me; 
The changes that are sure to come 

: I do not fear to see; : 
But I ask Thee for a present mind 

Intent on pleasing Thee. 

I ask Thee for a thoughtful love 
Through constant watching wise, 

To meet the glad with joyful smiles, 
: And to wipe the weeping eyes; : 

And a heart at leisure from itself, 
To soothe and sympathize. 

Wherever in the world I am, 

In whatsoe 'er estate, 
I have a fellowship of hearts 

: To keep and cultivate; : 
And a work of lowly love to do 

For the Lord on whom I wait. 

So I ask Thee for the daily strength 

To none that ask denied, 
And a mind to blend with outward life 

: While keeping at Thy side; : 
Content to fill a little space 

If Thou be glorified.

Intervale 

Softness — 

of dusty, olive-green, scrub pines 
and lavender-mauve birch twigs 
against the dark sombreness 
of cedar and hemlock. 

Softness — 

of pale-green lichen-moss 
on the smooth, mottled-gray, 
masculine-sinewed bark 
of blue beeches. 

Softness — 

of powdered-snow baby-pillows 

tucked in the gnarled elbows 

of old oak trees ; 

and fluffy cloud-reflections 

in the polished-blue steel of a stream. 

Softness — 
of a lazy 

faintly-whimsical curl 
of train-smoke 
against periwinkle-gray 
dawn-touched Mt. Washington. 

Mary Roys 



Intervale 

On February fourth of this year, a beautiful new world was 
opened up to us Seniors. We came to know truly what previously 
had been a mere vague impression. We began on that day to dis- 
cover the magic behind the word "Intervale ". 

We felt the atmosphere immediately upon arrival. A huge 
sleigh drawn by four horses conveyed us to the " Belle vue". The 
sign "Welcome, Abbot" which first met our eyes made us feel 
at home at once. Within an hour we were all arrayed in our sport 
togs, and ready for anything. Thus began four days in which we 
tried every imaginable type of winter sport. It was wonderful 
having the toboggan slide and skating rink right outside the door. 

In the wee, small hours of the morning we watched the sun 
color the mountains with a crimson hue. It was our loving com- 
panion, Miss Bailey, who divulged this early morning secret. 

At night our main amusement was a walk in the pitch black 
to North Conway. Will we ever forget Betty Mac's wild tele- 
phone call? We were so surprised to find we had a Sue Carroll in 
our midst. 

One of our chief pastimes was posing in front of numerous 
cameras. One of the photographers called Jo-Jo the "Abbess of 
Abbot. " What could he have meant?? 

Speaking of pastimes, we can't afford to leave out the food. 
Kay Bowden and Jarman took prizes in that line, 'though we 
all were close on their heels. 

The last night we were there, snow began to fall lazily. We all 
made our way through the "Cathedral" woods to "Wyehut" 
where we sat around four crackling fires. There we ate delicious 
flapjacks and sang every song we could think of. The next morning 
the snow was still falling. This time the Merriman Woods was the 
scene of our activities. We snowshoed and snowshoed with Miss 
Bailey, who later took more pictures of our wet, bedraggled selves. 

A strange sadness came over us all when the time for departure 
drew near. It was hard to leave the place we had grown to love, 
the place that had bound us more firmly together, not only as a class, 
but as a group of true friends. We will cherish forever the memory 
of those four marvelous days. 



Songs of Intervale 

(Tune — "Happy Days and Lonely Nights") 

Riding in our private car 

We've been journeying forth afar 

To lovely Intervale. 

Many jolly things we've done 

There out in the snow and sun 

At merry Intervale. 

But while we winter-sported 

We thought, oh faculty, 

How dear you are to seniors, 

As dear as dear can be. 

Last night beneath the pine tree spires 

We sat round the blazing fires, 

Wishing that you were there. 

As we ate countless flapjacks 

Hot our faces, cold our backs, 

We wished you had your share. 

(Tune — " There's a Rainbow 'Round My Shoulder") 

There were mountains all around us 

And skies of blue above, 

So we're happy now as we can be 

'Cause we had fun. 

There was skiing and tobogganing, 

Skating, trailing, coasting, too. 

We tripped and fell, we're black and blue, 

But we had fun. 

So don 't look at us with such a stare, 

For some day you too will all be there 

To enjoy the sports and view so rare, 

And oh, what food! Oh, gee. 

There were mountains all around us 

And skies of blue above, 

So we 're happy now as we can be, 

'Cause we had fun.

SONGS OF INTERVALE 71 

(Tune — "We Faw Down and Go Boom\") 

We went up to Intervale, Intervale, Intervale, 

We went trailing down the vale 

We faw down and go boom ! 

We went skating on the ice, on the ice, on the ice, 

We were going along so nice 

We faw down and go boom ! 

We climbed, we dined, we went tobogganing, 

We skiied, we sleighed, and how that certain place was hurtin', 

We had moving pictures taken, pictures taken, pictures taken, 

We had fancy skating taken 

We faw down and go boom ! 

(Tune — "Doing the Raccoon") 

Oh, the football games at Princeton, and the hockey games at Yale 

Haven 't got an edge on Abbot, when we go to Intervale. 

We skated in the moonlight, and we snowshoed in the twilight, 

We stayed up 'most the whole night, 

And not doing our Virgil or Psych. 

A gayer crowd of girls you '11 never find, 

We didn 't miss the old scholastic grind, 

For we skated in the moonlight, and we snowshoed in the twilight, 

We stayed up 'most the whole night, 

And not doing our Virgil or Psych. 

(Tune— "A Little Bit of Heaven") 

Sure, a little bit of heaven fell from out the sky one day 
And it nestled in New Hampshire, not so many miles away; 
And when the angels found it, sure, it looked so sweet and fair, 
They said, "Suppose we leave it, for it is so peaceful there. " 
So they sprinkled it with sunshine just to make the pine trees 

grow 

They're the finest ones that can be found, no matter where you 

go 

And they placed the mountains 'round it, just to keep away the gale, 
And when they had it finished, sure, they called it Intervale. 



Snowstorm 

The slanting stitches of snow 

embroider 

heavy, wool-white, masses of softness 

on the down-hanging branches of fir-trees. 

There is pale-lemon 

and gray-lavender 

on the snow-covered paper birches; 

and the rough, scaly, bark 

of white pines 

is shaded in dark rose-tan. 

The little bushes 
are deep-sea coral 
with delicate, intricate, branches 
of pure-alabaster white; 
and all the old stumps 
and posts 

are capped and mantled 
with cotton-soft, clinging, snow- 
dampness.

The "A" society was founded in 1917, with the purpose of 
promoting good school spirit, sportsmanship and leadership. The 
"A" society must be composed of girls who have won their A. 
To win this A two hundred and fifty points must be gained. This 
may be done by making different athletic teams and by taking 
the required number of walks and rides. 

When the "A's" are awarded, scholarship, spirit, general 
attitude, and discipline are all considered. The "A" society repre- 
sents a high grade of work in all lines and helps to maintain 
interest in school activities.

The grinning face of the Gargoyle and the stern countenance 
of the Griffin are the symbols carrying the names of our two athletic 
groups. The Gargoyles and Griffins were inaugurated here in the 
fall of 1927 to promote enthusiasm in our athletic contests. The 
school was divided, and old girls chosen for each club so that the 
athletic ability in one might equal that in the other as closely as 
possible. Try-outs were held last fall in order to determine the 
new girls' membership, and we feel that the division is well-nigh 
perfect. The clubs have played the game fairly in every sport, and 
the captains have maintained wonderful spirit both years. The 
Gargoyles were the victors the first year, but the Griffins may 
inscribe their name on the shield of honor this year just to even 
things up.

Abbot Dramatic Society 




The Abbot Dramatic Society was inaugurated in 1924 by a 
group of competent young girls who wished to further their 
dramatic interests and ability. The enthusiasm with which the 
society was begun has never dwindled and the organization has 
now grown to be one of importance. 

Since its establishment it has presented an annual play in 
which the ability and energy of the members are shown. During 
the months, meetings are held for the purpose of reading and dis- 
cussing plays. 

The Dramatic Society has been very devoted to its interests 
and is increasing its already high prestige.

Aeolian society was founded in the spring of 1927, by students 
who were either taking the music course or were interested in music, 
with Miss Kate Friskin as its faculty advisor. Its aim is to bring 
together girls who have a common interest in music and who are 
willing to give up a part of their time to entertainment as well as to 
research along lines agreed upon by the society. The lives of com- 
posers have been studied and papers read with illustrations either 
vocal or instrumental. During the spring term a program upon 
which the members have been working during the past year, is 
given to the whole school. Both fun and education are derived 
from this society which we consider truly worth while.

Les Beaux Arts 




Les Beaux Arts was founded in 1925 for the purpose of in- 
creasing general interest along artistic lines. The years 1926 and 
1927 were spent in studying principally the old Masters. At this 
time great interest was also shown in charcoal drawings done by 
members of the society. During the past two years we have studied 
and discussed modern art. Mrs. Van Ness is our very helpful 
faculty advisor.

Q. E. D. society was founded in 1920 to promote interest in 
the study of Current Events, Debating, and any topic of current 
interest. One of the many functions of the society is that of judg- 
ing the "News", and posting an honor-roll selected from the Eng- 
lish classes that give the "News. " 

As in previous years, Q. E. D. has carried on debates within 
the society, and on the 9th of March presented for the school the 
question that "The boundaries of Hungary as settled by the Treaty 
of Trianon should be readjusted." The decision this time was for 
the negative, but both sides put forward strong arguments. For a 
number of years Miss Rebekah Chickering has been our very kind 
and extremely helpful faculty advisor.

Prunella, or Love in a Dutch Garden 

By Laurence Hausman and Granville Barker 

Prunella is a shy young girl who has been brought up care- 
fully by three maiden aunts. She is very innocent because she has 
been sheltered from all contact with the outside world. Pierrot, 
the leader of a troupe of mummers which has just come to town, 
sees Prunella one day and falls in love with her. He woos her and 
finally persuades her to elope with him. She becomes his Pierrette. 
Not long after their marriage, Pierrette, who really loves Pierrot, 
finds that he considers her just an episode in his life and that he is 
too self -centered for true love. He leaves her for a short time, 
and upon his return discovers that she has left him. Crestfallen, 
because he realizes that she is not a passing fancy but a true love, 
he decides to go back to the little Dutch garden where he had first 
found her. In the meantime, Prunella, who is Pierrette no longer, 
goes home hoping to find her aunts, but everything has changed 
and the house is in the hands of a new owner. Homeless, Prunella 
goes to sleep in the garden underneath the statue of Love. Here, 
Pierrot, who is the new owner of the Dutch garden, finds her and 
finally forgets himself in his great love for her.

DRAMATICS 109 

Martha's Mourning 

Martha s Mourning by Phoebe Hoffman was a difficult play 
whose scene was laid in the poor home of a miserly woman and her 
niece. The lines offered very little relief in humor, but the parts 
were so well taken that the intensity of the action, subtle as it was, 
carried it through successfully. "Aunty" was particularly well 
characterized, and the play never seemed to go beyond her scope 
as it might have with so many amateurs.. We felt that this more 
serious piece was a very acceptable prelude to the following play.

Jazz and Minuet 

A. D. S. chose Jazz and Minuet by Ruth Giorloff with the 
audience in mind, as the play offered just the right proportions 
of modern and old comedy to appeal to us all. The story is of a 
modern girl 's rebellious attitude toward her business-bound fiance, 
and her dream after reading a great aunt 's diary. The lines fairly 
dance along with quick wit and feeling, and are a true expression 
of the modern young woman. The contrast between the old and 
new costume adds a bit of color and a duel in a modern play pre- 
sents quite a novelty.

Einer Muss Heirathen 

We have all seen comedies in English, and some of us in 
French, but very few of us had enjoyed a real German "Lustspiel" 
before last fall. Through the efforts of Miss Baker and the German 
department we were able to follow the trials and tribulations of 
Jakob and Wilhelm Zorn in Einer Muss Heirathen by Alexander 
Wilhelmi. The aunt of these two brothers insists that one of them 
carry out their dead father's wish and marry, so that she will have 
someone to help her about the house. This order sends the con- 
firmed bachelors into a frenzy. When they are somewhat calmed 
it naturally follows that the only fair way to decide the issue is to 
draw lots. Jakob is the victim and with the aid of Wilhelm starts 
to court his cousin Luise. However, Wilhelm, in demonstrating the 
art of love to his brother, succumbs to the charm of Luise. This 
releases Jakob and makes everyone happy. 

Even those who were not familiar with the German language 
were able to enjoy the many amusing scenes of this comedy. The 
German songs also lent atmosphere to the evening.

I 

Thou shalt go to the movies any time, for thou dost not mind 
walking the circle an hour every day. 

II 

Thou shalt do no Ethics for thou shalt get A anyway. 

Ill 

Thou shalt eat all that thou desirest, for ye are all sylphs. 

IV 

Thou shalt spend thy study hours reading magazines. They 
are much more broadening than school books. 

V 

Thou shalt be late for breakfast so that thou mayst escort 
Miss Bancroft into the dining-room. 

VI 

Thou shalt stay home from church on Sundays, for Phillips 
boys who chew gum are poor company for thee. 

VII 

Thou shalt take as many week-ends as possible, for thou often 
needst a rest. 

VIII 
Thou shalt use thy flashlight after lights to be a guide to the 
night-watchman . 

IX 
Thou shalt drink many cups of coffee during exam time to keep 
thy mind clear for cramming. 

X 
Thou shalt wear spike heels and silk stockings. They maketh 
thy legs look thinner.

A Maiden 's Soliloquy 

(A Parody on Hamlet's Soliloquy) 

To eat, or not to eat ; that is the question : 

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer 

The stares and glances for an enormous figure, 

Or to forego all pleasing victuals, 

And by not eating, be thin, to starve; to eat — 

No more; and by a fast to say we end 

The wrinkles, and the thousand double chins 

That flesh is heir to, 'tis a perfection 

Devoutly to be wished. To change one's shape; 

To fast; perchance to starve; aye there 's the rub; 

For to that starving soul temptations come, 

When we have shuffled off desire for sweet, 

To give us pause : there 's the respect 

That makes calamity of such a diet; 

For who would bear against the smell of apple dumplings, 

The teacher's threat, the senior's contumely, 

The pangs of empty stomach, ham and eggs, 

The insolence of rules, and the spurns 

The patient fat one of the skinny takes, 

When she herself might eat a house down 

In one great mouthful? Who exerts herself, 

To grunt and sweat under weary exercise, 

But that the dread of giving up some food, 

An undiscovered pleasure, which temptation 

No one refuses, puzzles the will, 

And makes us rather bear the pound we have 

Than be uncomfortable for a single moment? 

Thus hunger does make cowards of us all 

And thus the noble point of resolution 

Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, 

And calories of great power and value 

With this regard are tempted to our stomachs, 

And use the name of action.

Dedicated to. 



There was a young lady from Abbot, 
Who dressed in a very fine habit. 

To attract the young men? 

Or to shock the fem-sem? 
Which was it? We ask you, Miss Abbot? 

There was a young man from our Hill 
Who could whistle with very great skill 

So he came every night 

Just to excite 
The young ladies who hung on the sill. 

There is a young man on the Hill 
W hose looks give the girls a great thrill 
But his books he neglects 
And gets put on "non-ex" 
And so cannot come down from the Hill. 

There was a young man from our Hill 
Whom young ladies of Abbot called Bill. 

He came down on Friday, 

Looked all neat and tidy 
In fact, he was dressed fit to kill.

Keys 

(See Questions on pages 118-119) 

KEY 202 

You certainly are the ideal Abbot girl. You are probably so 
good that it hurts — others. People probably disappoint you be- 
cause they do not realize the seriousness of life. Your vocation is 
to teach your friends how to use wings but if you really want to 
be useful, duck your head in water three times and bring it out 
twice. 

KEY 75 

You have the right idea. Stick to it and you probably will 
marry a traveling salesman. 

KEY 56 

You ought to improve. Such things as sharpening your pencil 
in silent time or going down town Saturdays without permission 
simply are not done at Abbot. Then again if you do not stop "cut- 
ting" exercises you will gain tons. Next year you had better room 
with someone on Stu-. G. 

KEY 200 

You do not belong at Abbot. 

KEY 89 

There must be some reason — even your best friend won 't tell 
you. 

KEY 96 

The trouble with you is you're different. If you would know 
the difference, proceed at your own risk. Go west, young woman, 
where men are men, eat yeast and you're sure to rise. 

KEY 182 

The way for you to get ahead is to open dog kennels. Through 
this means of support you will come in contact with professional 
people, such as veterinaries, dog catchers and flea exterminators. 
You will without a doubt marry a landscape gardener. 

KEY 115 

In the first place you have a misplaced superiority complex. 
To overcome this malady take one half arsenic and one half 
water two nights running, skipping one night and don't trip. 
Be sure to sleep on goofer feathers and don 't trump your partner's 
ace.
